Don't pay to get into the park unless you specifically want to stay at the lodge or visit the interpretive center. BRING CASH! NO Credit cards, no matter what you read. The views from the road in are just as good as those from the spot after you pay. The 17 mile 2 hour drive through the park is a disaster. DO NOT ATTEMPT without a four wheel drive and a firm hold on your fillings. This is NOT a road, it is a very rigged path over which you travel at 2 miles per hour. Really, drive in to the visitor center turn off, see the hand full of bluffs then turn around and drive back to the highway.

Our visit to Monument Valley was slightly out of the way for us, but we decided to detour about 20 miles and see it. It was a good decision. Absolutely dramatic scenery. After visiting, it is easy to see why Hollywood fell in love with it many years ago. The visitor center houses a museum that is a must see. Also houses a gift shop and restaurant. Be sure to have your camera ready be because there are photo ops everywhere you look. One of the most beautiful spots in the USA.

Monument Valley is as fascinating and awesome as one would expect.

The landscape is incredibly impressive and the drive on the predefined route through the canyons is absolutely amazing.

Even if you are on the west coast, you should consider checking out this place. Worth a long trip.

I was not so impressed by The View hotel, the only hotel there. Didn't feel classy. We had lunch and it was soso.

But we bought some excellent Navajo jewelry there. Really nice!

If you find yourself in Northern Arizona not too far from the Utah border, a must see is Monument Valley-we actually made it a destination on our way from New Mexice to Utah. This Valley is rich with The History of the Navajo Peoples as well as stunning views of natural monuments seen nowhere else. There is a Navajo Tour group right in the parking lot where you can book 3 hour or more tours. I can not remember the name of the group, but they are the only one inside the Valley at the parking area. This is the second tour we have taken with them and it was even better than the first! These are Navajo Guides for who Monument Valley has been their back yard for centuries. Thaes men will take you to parts no other tourists get to see and are so informative about the history, flora & fauna right down to how to treat a rattlesnake bite! They will also take you to the former home of Suzie Yazi (who played a Native American in many John Wayne movies) where her Granddaughter will demonstrate how the Natives still card wool and make the rugs they are so famous for. The Scenic Drive one can take on their own, but a 4wd vehicle is recommended as the road is not paved and has many ruts in some places. This gets one up-close and personal to the Monuments.

Great views, interesting look at native American lifestyles. You get to see the iconic scenes that you've seen in the movies.
